We have reached the penultimate round of the 2021-22 English Premier League season. Do you know what that means? Only two FPL Gameweeks are remaining.

Aston Villa, Burnley, Crystal Palace, Everton, and Leicester City play twice in Gameweek 37, while Manchester United blanks. Naturally, my Fantasy Premier League rankings for Gameweek 37 focus on the key Double Gameweek assets.

Join me as I examine the best FPL players for Gameweek 37 and the top differentials for the remainder of the campaign. You can find my GW37 FPL rankings at the end of this post.

Before getting stuck into my FPL tips for Gameweek 37, we need to evaluate the fixtures.

Fantasy Premier League Gameweek 37 Fixtures

With the 2022 FA Cup final taking center stage this weekend, Gameweek 37 begins on Sunday, May 15. Tottenham and Burnley get the action underway at noon (BST), meaning the deadline is 10:30.

The first batch of GW37 FPL fixtures is scheduled to take place between Sunday and Tuesday.

  • Tottenham Hotspur vs. Burnley
  • Wolverhampton Wanderers vs. Norwich City
  • West Ham United vs. Manchester City
  • Watford vs. Leicester City
  • Leeds United vs. Brighton & Hove Albion
  • Aston Villa vs. Crystal Palace
  • Everton vs. Brentford
  • Newcastle United vs. Arsenal
  • Southampton vs. Liverpool

All three Double Gameweek clashes will go down on Thursday, May 19. Relegation-threatened Everton hosts Crystal Palace in the early kick-off, with the remaining two fixtures taking place later that evening.

  • Aston Villa vs. Burnley
  • Chelsea vs. Leicester City
  • Everton vs. Crystal Palace

If you enjoy playing FPL, the chances are that you also enjoy betting on the Premier League. If that is the case, be sure to check out our Premier League tips, predictions, and picks for Gameweek 37.

Best Players for FPL Gameweek 37 – My Top 5

It’s time to check out the best Fantasy Premier League players for Gameweek 37. Of course, many of the top FPL players for GW37 play for teams that double up. But I have also chosen to include a Single Gameweek player who has the potential to outscore everyone.

Ollie Watkins, Aston Villa (£7.5m)

Reliable forwards have been hard to come by in FPL this season. Players like Harry Kane, Cristiano Ronaldo, and Gabriel Jesus have enjoyed periods of success, but the majority of forwards have struggled for consistency.

That said, Aston Villa’s Ollie Watkins has managed to pick up FPL points regularly. With favorable home games against Crystal Palace and Burnley on the horizon, he looks set to bolster his tally in the coming days.

Not only has Watkins netted two goals in his last three appearances, but he has also scored five across his previous 11. That makes him one of the best players for FPL Gameweek 37.

Wilfried Zaha, Crystal Palace (£6.9m)

Whenever Crystal Palace has a Double Gameweek, Wilfried Zaha becomes one of the most talk about assets in Fantasy Premier League. Granted, the skillful winger has gained a reputation as a hit-and-miss player. But over the past few months, he has been more “hit” than “miss.”

Zaha heads into Gameweek 37 on a two-game scoring streak, having found the back of the net against Southampton and Watford. When you look at the bigger picture, he has bagged seven goals in his last ten EPL outings.

With 13 Premier League goals to this name this season, Zaha has to be viewed as one of the best FPL players for Gameweek 37.

Jordan Pickford, Everton (£4.8m)

It is no exaggeration to say that Jordan Pickford has been immense for Everton in recent weeks. If the Toffees end up avoiding relegation, they will need to thank their goalkeeper for his standout performances during the run-in.

After keeping a clean sheet against Manchester United in GW32, the England shot-stopper registered a ten-point haul against Chelsea in GW35. Despite conceding against Leicester in GW36, he still managed to leave the King Power Stadium with six points.

Everton has two favorable home ties to look forward to in Gameweek 37, with Brentford and Palace visiting Goodison Park. Naturally, Pickford will be confident of picking up more FPL points.

Matty Cash, Aston Villa (£5.3m)

Matty Cash has started all of Aston Villa’s 35 EPL games this season. As well as helping his team to keep 11 clean sheets, the adventurous right-back has contributed three goals and three assists.

Consequently, Cash has accumulated more FPL points than any of his teammates in 2021-22.

Player Position Cost Ownership Points
Matty Cash Defender £5.3m 11.6% 136
Emi Martinez Goalkeeper £5.5m 11.6% 123
Ollie Watkins Forward £7.5m 11.6% 116

If you still have a Free Hit chip at your disposal, Cash should be one of the first players on your FH team. But even if you don’t have any chips remaining, Cash could prove to be one of the best FPL transfers for Gameweek 37.

Son Heung-min, Tottenham Hotspur (£11.0m)

Son Heung-min is the only Single Gameweek player among my top five FPL players for Gameweek 37. Why? Because the Tottenham Hotspur superstar is on fire right now!

After bagging a brace against West Ham in GW30, the South Korean netted a hat-trick against Aston Villa in GW32 before notching another brace against Leicester in GW35. As a result, he is hot on Mohamed Salah’s heels in the Golden Boot race.

Spurs welcome relegation-threatened Burnley to North London on Sunday. Don’t be surprised if Son runs riot against the Clarets.

Top 5 FPL Differentials for Gameweek 37

Are you looking for the best differentials for FPL Gameweek 37? Below, I examine five top FPL differentials for GW37 – all of whom have an ownership of less than 5%. These low-ownership gems have the potential to launch you up the Fantasy Premier League rankings.

Dominic Calvert-Lewin, Everton (£7.7m)

It is no secret that Dominic Calvert-Lewin’s season has been plagued by injury. The Everton striker missed 14 games with a fractured toe between September and December and has featured sparingly since the turn of the year.

However, the 25-year-old has returned from his latest setback and is ready to help the Toffees beat the drop. Having bagged 21 goals and five assists in all competitions last season, there is no doubting Calvert-Lewin’s ability.

Oh, and did I mention that he is owned by just 2.8% of FPL managers?

Douglas Luiz, Aston Villa (£4.3m)

Philippe Coutinho and Jacob Ramsey have been the popular Aston Villa midfielders in Fantasy Premier League this season. If you’re looking for a differential, though, Douglas Luiz could prove to be a shrewd pick for GW37.

Boasting a measly ownership of 1.7%, the Brazilian has chipped in with two goals and three assists this season. After scoring in Villa’s 2-1 loss to Liverpool on Tuesday, he will be hungry for more goals against Palace and Burnley.

Joachim Andersen, Crystal Palace (£4.6m)

After keeping back-to-back clean sheets in GW28 and GW29, Joachim Andersen notched a mammoth 15-point haul against Arsenal in GW31. He followed that up with five points in GW34 before collecting eight points in the previous round.

With Marc Guehi sidelined due to injury, Andersen is undoubtedly the best Crystal Palace defender for the upcoming Double Gameweek. Believe it or not, he is owned by only 2.4% of FPL managers.

Maxwel Cornet, Burnley (£5.8m)

Granted, Burnley’s Double Gameweek fixtures are not the best. The Clarets travel to Tottenham on Sunday before visiting Villa Park next Thursday. Still, there is no harm in taking a punt on a Burnley asset if you need to climb the FPL rankings.

Player Position Cost Ownership Points
Nick Pope Goalkeeper £5.3m 3.5% 120
Maxwell Cornet Midfielder £5.8m 0.7% 88
Josh Brownhill Midfielder £4.3m 3.4% 86

Maxwell Cornet – who has an ownership of just 0.7% – is my recommended Burnley pick for GW37. The Ivorian winger has chalked up eight goals in 1,509 minutes of EPL action this season, meaning he averages around 0.5 goals per 90.

Kelechi Iheanacho, Leicester City (£7.0m)

At the time of writing, Kelechi Iheanacho has registered eight goals and nine assists across all competitions this season. With Leicester facing already-relegated Norwich before the deadline, his tally may look even more impressive by the time you lock in your GW37 team.

It has been difficult to predict Leicester’s starting XI in recent months, given the club’s involvement in Europe. But the Foxes are now out of the Europa Conference League, meaning they will be eager to finish their EPL campaign on a high note.

Fantasy Premier League Rankings for Gameweek 37

It’s time to wrap things up with my Gameweek 37 Fantasy Premier League rankings. In this section, I ranked the top five players at each position – based upon predicted points, fixture difficulty, form, and other important factors.

Best FPL Goalkeepers (GW37)

Jordan Pickford
  • Jordan Pickford, Everton (£4.8m)
  • Emi Martinez, Aston Villa (£5.5m)
  • Nick Pope, Burnley (£5.3m)
  • Kasper Schmeichel, Leicester City (£5.0m)
  • Vicente Guaita, Crystal Palace (£4.6m)

Following a series of standout displays, Pickford tops my goalkeeper rankings for FPL Gameweek 37. Emi Martinez, Nick Pope, Kasper Schmeichel, and Vicente Guaita complete the top five, given that they all have a Double Gameweek.

If you’re looking for a Single Gameweek goalkeeper, I recommend opting for Liverpool’s Alisson or Man City’s Ederson. The Brazilians have kept countless clean sheets between them this season, making them the highest-scoring goalkeepers in the game.

Best FPL Defenders (GW37)

Matty Cash
  • Matty Cash, Aston Villa (£5.3m)
  • Lucas Digne, Aston Villa (£5.0m)
  • Ben Godfrey, Everton (£4.7m)
  • Seamus Coleman, Everton (£4.9m)
  • Wesley Fofana, Leicester City (£5.6m)

My Fantasy Premier League rankings for GW37 defenders are dominated by Aston Villa and Everton assets. I have already explained why Cash is a top pick, but I also like the look of Lucas Digne, Ben Godfrey, and Seamus Coleman this week.

Leicester’s Wesley Fofana also has the potential to pick up plenty of FPL points in Gameweek 37. The highly-rated center-back is back in action after missing most of the season through injury.

Best FPL Midfielders (GW37)

Wilfried Zaha
  • Wilfried Zaha, Crystal Palace (£13.3m)
  • Son Heung-min, Tottenham Hotspur (£11.0m)
  • James Maddison, Leicester City (£6.9m)
  • Philippe Coutinho, Aston Villa (£7.1m)
  • Mohamed Salah, Liverpool (£13.3m)

Zaha finds himself atop my FPL rankings for Gameweek 37 midfielders. I have also decided to select Son ahead of the other Double Gameweek options simply because the Tottenham star is in irresistible form at the moment.

Leicester’s James Maddison and Aston Villa’s Philippe Coutinho are excellent Double Gameweek midfielders for GW37. Mohamed Salah completes my midfielder rankings for Fantasy Premier League Gameweek 37. You don’t need me to explain why.

Best FPL Forwards (GW37)

Ollie Watkins
  • Ollie Watkins, Aston Villa (£7.5m)
  • Danny Ings, Aston Villa (£7.5m)
  • Richarlison, Everton (£7.5m)
  • Kelechi Iheanacho, Leicester City (£7.0m)
  • Harry Kane, Tottenham Hotspur (£12.4m)

Danny Ings has been getting plenty of game time alongside Watkins in Aston Villa’s forward line. With that in mind, it wouldn’t be a terrible idea to double up on Villa forwards for their Double Gameweek against Palace and Burnley.

Everton’s Richarlison and Iheanacho are also worth considering if you’re in need of Double Gameweek forwards. Harry Kane is arguably the best option if you can afford a premium forward for Gameweek 37.

More Fantasy Premier League Tips for Gameweek 37

Every FPL transfer counts at this stage of the season. With only two Gameweeks remaining in 2021-22, it is vital that you pick the right players. Hopefully, my Gameweek 37 Fantasy Premier League tips will help you make the right decisions.


FPL managers who still have a Free Hit up their sleeve may be tempted to stack their team with Double Gameweek players, but that approach could backfire. Don’t forget about the premium Single Gameweek assets that could outscore the popular DGW picks.

With Aston Villa, Burnley, Crystal Palace, Everton, and Leicester doubling up in Gameweek 37, your options are limited. That’s why I recommend opting for a solid blend of Single and Double Gameweek players.

That concludes my FPL tips for Gameweek 37. If you’re looking for more Premier League content, be sure to check out our EPL betting guide.
